The Maven is our Grenache dominant wine here at Torrin. The percentage of Grenache has ranged from as low as 70% to as high as 92% in past vintages. For the 2013 vintage however, Mother Nature blessed us with some of the most remarkable Grenache we have produced to date. Therefore, we simply opted to say thank you very much and, for the first time, we bottled the Maven as a pure 100% Grenache. While our last few vintages have critically rivaled the best Grenache that California has to offer, we feel the 2013 will continue to build on that momentum and raise the bar a bit higher. The Maven shows impeccable balance between bright red fruits and undertones of spice and herbs in a package that is silky and round well into the lengthy finish. The wine is showing incredibly well in its youth but, like all Torrin wines, it will continue to develop beautifully over the next decade.
